“While living in Colorado, I worked for an all Vietnamese company that made wreaths and wall decorations out of red river birch and white willow twigs as their office manager. I worked there for 10 years and became very close to the people that I worked with. Often the owner of the company would treat me to lunch from his favorite Vietnamese restaurant. I always requested this dish. He once told me the name of it but darned if I could ever understand what he was saying, let alone how to spell it. Anyway, I just had to recreate this wonderful Vietnamese dish from memory because I have missed it so much. Here is what I have come up with.”
